In 2009 Swiss Exams opened the first permanent Cambridge Exams CB lab in Winterthur, to be followed by Chur in 2010, Zurich and Basel in 2012. In 2013 and 2014 the first two mobile CB labs were put into operation for Lucerne and Bern.
Because of the high demand for Cambridge English CB tests, the inevitable next move was to strive for a permanent CB solution for Bern, which would give us the opportunity to offer unlimited spaces to schools and individual candidates.
